Storage Area Networks

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a network designed to attach computer storage devices such as disk array controllers and tape libraries to servers. As of 2006, SANs are most commonly found in enterprise storage. A SAN allows a machine to connect to remote targets such as disks and tape drives on a network for block level I/O.

The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.
